Chris Moyles is officially part of the cast of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! 2022.

The Radio X DJ was confirmed among a star-studded list of celebs to go into the jungle this year, but before he left for Australia, he had to break it to his team.

Teasing the announcement ahead of his trip to Australia, he said: "We can play a little game. or I can just tell you, It's up to you..."

Unsurprisingly, Pippa, Dom and James opted to play a guessing game, which quizzed the Radio X presenter what exactly the big surprise was.

Much hilarity ensured, but nothing can beat their reaction when Chris decided to spill his secret!

Chris opted to play the ITV show's famous theme tune, which had Pippa, Dom and James in absolute in disbelief.

Once the cat was out of the bag, Chris admitted: "I'm terrified."

"And I'm very emotional by your reaction, because now it feels real," he continued, with glistening eyes. "Nobody, literally nobody [knows].

"I haven't spoken to my parents about it. I haven't told my best friends. Nothing. No one knows apart from literally a few handful of people who have to know."

Speaking of the fact he'll probably have to do a height challenge at the start of the show, he added: "Ah! I'm petrified."
